It's cold to the touch, yet it burns my skin,
I hate this empty chamber that I'mheld within,
The ropes around my wrists, leave blisters red and sore,
My body is filled with hatred to the very core,
Starvation wrecks my body and hunger aches my soul,
Inside my blackened heart the pit of sadness grows,
Cold shivers freeze me to the very bone,
My skin aches for a warm touch, I long to go home,
Eyes as black as ebony, skin as white as snow,
I scream my fears aloud, all my pain you know,
I feel the blood trickle down the side of my face,
Please somebody help me, save me from this fate,
Blue and purple bruisie cover my torso and arms
You promised me security, said you'd keep me from harm,
All of your words and "I love you"s will never be enough,
Please just unchain me from this torture you call love.

OUCH!

...<materializes from nowhere>

This is a very well written poem. I like the pacing and the rhythm and rhyme. It is very visual and does a great job of painting the torture chamber in words. I really love the opening, and the contrast between hot and cold...or in this case so cold it burns. Very nice. You do an excellent job of illustrating pain here.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
